Mom's speaking out!

Pattie Mallette, author, film producer and mother of Justin Bieber, took to Twitter yesterday (Dec. 8) for a Q&A session in which she answered questions ranging in topic from her son's fame to her struggles with depression.

Though she's seen her own share of success, Mallette still considers her son to be the most beautiful part of her life.

And she seems to love his fans just as much as her own.

When asked about her favorite memory with Justin, Mallette painted an adorable picture of the star's younger years, responding: "Bedtimes. I would tuck him in, read to him, pray with him & talk & giggle sometimes for an hour or more. *sigh. I miss that!"

One fan wanted to hear what mom had to say about her son's tattoos. Mallette said that she was torn on the matter and while she wishes his skin were ink-free, she does like his designs.

Mallette also fielded questions about her 2012 memoir Nowhere But Up, as well as her experiences with depression and her suicide attempt.

So, what's next for the busy mom? It's clear that Mallette's schedule is jam-packed, but she remembers to take time for herself. When asked about her dating life, she quoted her son, tweeting, "As @justinbieber would say.. Single & ready to mingle ;)"

Mallette even revealed that she might want to give Justin a younger sibling one day.

Referencing her fans' questions about struggle and hardship, Mallette rounded out the session with lots of love and a reminder to stay positive.
